REAL MADRID | CARVAJAL
Carvajal happy for Danilo to get his chance
The Real Madrid defender said his new team-mate was a fantastic person who would only be good for the club.
Dani Carvajal was happy with his performance against Manchester City in today’s 4-1 win: “The team is performing better all the time. The way we feel, what the gaffer asks of us, his orders, we’re following them and the team’s happy”.
Are you a starter in the XI
Not at all. I think the boss is sharing the playing time. Today he had his faith in me to start, but another day it’ll be Danilo. Both of us are trying to do the best possible, and we need to put the effort in for the team.
Team beginning to gel
Yes. Roma was the first game. Against City our game was more fluid and you could see it on the pitch.
Fight for the position
Danilo is a great lad, really nice and he’s great for the club. They’ve brought him in for us to fight for the position and we’ll try and do the best for the club between us. For me it’s just more motivation, another challenge. He’s another one of the best right backs in the world and it’s a motivation to improve day after day.
Do you start with an advantage over him?
I don’t know.
Benítez and the defence
It’s not that he’s tiresome, but he wants us to understand more. He wants the line of four to act in unison. He’ll make us improve.
